That ship has sailed. If Katz put the team on the market today with the existing original arena deal with the proviso that the new owner had to kick in an extra 55 million for the arena there would be no shortage of buyers kicking tires in my opinion.

Putting aside the whole hockey operations bit this city and the old crap coliseum has been one of the best concert and event attractors in North America for a number of years. Katz got the team at a bargain, has a gold plated deal in front of him, a huge loyal fan base, a team on the rise. If he wants out go ahead and out up the for sale sign because in our great naivete as fans when he came on board we all breathed a sigh of relief that we had a money bags owner and the days of the moving threats and crying poor were over.
